F.L.O.C.K. is a non-profit, no-kill, volunteer-based cat rescue organization dedicated to saving the unwanted and abandoned cats and kittens throughout the Las Vegas Valley. Our dedicated volunteers devote countless hours to rescuing, feeding, doing TNR (Trap, Neuter and Return), providing medical care, fostering, transporting, fundraising, adoptions, answering the F.L.O.C.K. phone line set up for concerned individuals with cat-related problems, office work, and the numerous other tasks necessary to continuing our mission.

As for the cats, the ones that are adoptable are medically checked out, spayed or neutered, given all shots and placed in excellent foster homes until they can be adopted out to a loving family. Feral cats, who are usually not adoptable, are part of our TNR Program. Their ears are tipped to indicate they have been spayed or neutered. They receive all shots and are given any veterinary care needed before being returned to their colony caretakers who nurture them and make sure they are getting everything they need to live out their lives happily and healthy.

1. Feral Cat TNR Program

Many communities are embracing Trap, Neuter, Release programs (TNR) to improve animal welfare, reduce death rates, and meet obligations to public welfare.

2. High-Volume, Low-Cost Spay/Neuter

Low cost, high volume spay/neuter will quickly lead to fewer animals entering the shelter system, allowing more resources to be allocated toward saving lives.

3. Rescue Groups

An adoption or transfer to a rescue group frees up scarce cage and kennel space, reduces expenses for feeding, cleaning, killing, and improves a community's rate of lifesaving. In an environment of millions of dogs and cats killed in shelters annually, rare is the circumstance in which a rescue group should be denied an animal.

4. Foster Care

Volunteer foster care is crucial to No Kill. Without it, saving lives is compromised. It is a low cost, and often no cost, way of increasing a shelter's capacity, improving public relations, increasing a shelter's public image, rehabilitating sick and injured or behaviorally challenged animals, and saving lives.

5. Comprehensive Adoption Programs

Adoptions are vital to an agency's lifesaving mission. The quantity and quality of shelter adoptions is in shelter management's hands, making lifesaving a direct function of shelter policies and practice. In fact, studies show people get their animals from shelters only 20% of the time. If shelters better promoted their animals and had adoption programs responsive to the needs of the community, including public access hours for working people, offsite adoptions, adoption incentives, and effective marketing, they could increase the number of homes available and replace killing with adoptions. Contrary to conventional wisdom, shelters can adopt their way out of killing.

6. Pet Retention

While some of the reasons animals are surrendered to shelters are unavoidable, others can be prevented-but only if shelters are willing to work with people to help them solve their problems. Saving animals requires communities to develop innovative strategies for keeping people and their companion animals together. And the more a community sees its shelters as a place to turn for advice and assistance, the easier this job will be.

7. Medical and Behavior Programs

In order to meet its commitment to a lifesaving guarantee for all savable animals, shelters need to keep animals happy and healthy and keep animals moving through the system. To do this, shelters must put in place comprehensive vaccination, handling, cleaning, socialization, and care policies before animals get sick and rehabilitative efforts for those who come in sick, injured, unweaned, or traumatized.

8. Public Relations/Community Involvement

Increasing adoptions, maximizing donations, recruiting volunteers and partnering with community agencies comes down to one thing: increasing the shelter's exposure. And that means consistent marketing and public relations. Public relations and marketing are the foundation of all a shelter's activities and their success. To do all these things well, the shelter must be in the public eye.

9. Volunteers

Volunteers are a dedicated "army of compassion" and the backbone of a successful No Kill effort. There is never enough staff, never enough dollars to hire more staff, and always more needs than paid human resources. That is where volunteers come in and make the difference between success and failure and, for the animals, life and death.

10. Proactive Redemptions

One of the most overlooked areas for reducing killing in animal control shelters are lost animal reclaims. Sadly, besides having pet owners fill out a lost pet report, very little effort is made in this area of shelter operations. This is unfortunate because doing so-primarily shifting from passive to a more proactive approach-has proven to have a significant impact on lifesaving and allow shelters to return a large percentage of lost animals to their families.

11. A Compassionate Director

The final element of the No Kill equation is the most important of all, without which all other elements are thwarted-a hard working, compassionate animal control or shelter director not content to regurgitate tired cliches or hide behind the myth of "too many animals, not enough homes." Unfortunately, this one is also oftentimes the hardest one to demand and find.

A friend of mine passed away on Tues. I promised him that if anything happened to him I would find "Big Boy" a home. He is a really nice cat but he has diabetes. I would keep him myself except I already have two dogs and six cats. If you can find it in your heart to help me find him a home or a sanctuary that will take him I willbe forever in your debt.

I have three cats that I have been feeding. Two are ferral and have been trapped neutered and returned. The older male has lived on my front porch for at least 8yrs, the smaller one has been with me for about 5yrs and has a gimpy hind leg. The third actually was abandoned because he had a collar wrapped around his leg, and has been coming around for 3yrs. I am moving to Colorado and though I think the younger ones probably get feed by other people the old grey one stays on the porch. I am more worried about him, what do you suggest? Is there a group that can take my old guy? He actually lets me brush him and cut the mats out of his coat.

I have an 11 year old female. She is having mental problems. I can't keep her as she bites, growls and swipes her paw. I don't want her to hurt my granddaughters. She's already scratched my husband and me. Please let me know what I can do.

We have a young boy who is in need of being rehomed. We're moving soon and can't take him with us. He's already neutered. Can you help?

My name is Laura. I need help. I have 3neutered boys in need of being rehomed. Can you help me? They were dropped off and I don't think the owner will be coming back. He's a homeless man.The boys are sweet tempered. One needs medical attention, one needs a groomer, and the last seems to be the healthiest.
